Why Are My Teeth Discolored?

  1. Food and Drink: Intensely pigmented foods and drinks tend to dull your smile. Some of the culprits for yellow teeth include coffee, tea, and red wine. This kind of staining can be easily corrected with professional tooth whitening.
  2. Tobacco Use: Tar and nicotine tend to leave a yellowish staining on the teeth.
  3. Age: Regular aging leads to tooth discoloration. That’s because the outer enamel of our teeth becomes thinner over time, and the yellowish dentin under the teeth shows through.
  4. Physical Trauma: If your teeth have been damaged, the tooth may react by laying down more dentin. This darkens the appearance of the tooth.
  5. Some Medications: Some antihistamines, antipsychotics, and high blood pressure medications may lead to tooth darkening. Young children who are exposed to antibiotics when their teeth are forming may also experience tooth discoloration later in life.

Reverse Discoloration with Zoom! Tooth Whitening

A Zoom! procedure takes no more than one hour, and you will see a smile that is about 6-10 shades whiter.
